“Why don’t the authorities apply a registration system that works? Who is the responsible here? I really would like to speak to him. There are easy solutions to the problem. I am in the queue for three days and three nights now. Look around. This looks like the end of the world here!”

The young Eritrean man is one among very few compatriots. Most of the refugees in Moria come from Afghanistan and Iraq. There are two queues along the gates of Moria and in the front a bundle of the most desperate trying to enter by force. Families with small babies and toddlers are trying to make their way through the masses to reach the front of the queue in order to get prioritized.

Moria / Lesbos: Registration chaos, police violence, hunger, thirst and sleeping rough

October 3: Registration queue in Moria / copyright: Salinia Stroux

In the first days of October 2015 Moria has become for one more time a nightmare to refugees and activists alike even though registration procedures have been speeded up since September. Anyhow, the system changes every day with no one knowing how to actually get documents. The despair of the people arriving wet from the coasts, staying outside in the cold without shelter, food or water, medication and without any information on what to do – specifically in the nights – is creating anxiousness and stress. Hundreds of refugees stand for hours and through all of the night in queues: One day on the upper gate, the next day on the another gate, once with extra queues for families, once without…. While many refugees are pushing to enter and get registered, riot police is controlling the gates with clubs and tear gas by force.

Moria officially includes since a few weeks a First Reception Center (FRC) and a Pre-removal center. The different sections just look alike though.
